I arrived and got creeps
I did the thing finished nanowrimo National Novel Writing month i did not fully follow the rules but i have no need for a novel so writing a generalized 50000 words mostly in short stories this month was still very impressive
thank you to everyone who supported me in writing but also in just living. I had the least productive win so far but also the best one I did not destroy my social life or sleep schedule. The days I wrote I wrote a lot but the ones I didn’t I was traveling or just needed to rest. This was an amazing experience and I am so glad I did it.
Time to go back to December 😀
I am back home in Edinburgh now already missing Ireland.
I started the day by visiting Trinity college explored the campus and found this beautiful sculpture. Reminded me of the bean.
Learned about Alfie the amazing mayor that once was. Took a selfie with his wax figure.
Went on a jail tour and learned some history
Way too early this morning I got on a plane with a few friends to Dublin Ireland
Napped on the flight. Had a cute exchange with imma fraction about my Irish last name and why I had been stamped back in 2012 for visiting Ireland
A friend wrote this and I think they did better than I ever could so sharing felt like a great idea
Tips from a successful NaNo-er on how to keep sane, write well, and make your month count!
First of all, congrats! Your interest in doing National Novel Writing Month, and your efforts so far, show an excitement for writing and storytelling and a willingness to rise to the challenge of writing a whole book in a month!
NaNo is definitely a challenge, but whether or not you meet your personal word count goal, the experience is a great teacher and the camaraderie and excitement that come along with a month dedicated to writing are inspirational enough to make you want to continue all year long! I’ve completed NaNo four years in high school and three years in college. My senior year I came in at 46,500 and I’m still kicking myself, but that’s okay. I’m currently working on two manuscripts, and decided not to take on the challenge this year…
